The Department of Science, Mathematics and Business at Pearl River Community College has two primary missions.
- to provide courses to support the programs of study in other academic departments and in the technical division of the college
- to offer essentially half of the requirements for a bachelor's degree with a major emphasis in biology, business administration, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, or engineering technology
Because of the diversity of the department mission, a variety of courses are offered in each discipline. These courses can be used to satisfy the core requirements for all majors and include special course offerings for elementary education.
